Best Vegas Pool Parties for 2022?
The hottest pool parties. The biggest performers. No sunblock required. (Actually, on second thought, you better put some on.) Our line-up of pools is the best in the world, and we look forward to welcoming you.
Pool parties are returning to Vegas for the 2022 pool season, and so is TAO Beach! After two years of construction and millions of dollars later, the new TAO Beach will finally open its doors this March to partiers around the world. This massive undertaking includes tons of extra space – 47,000 square feet to be exact – and room for 3,000 fashionistas, influences, pool-goers, scantily clad sunbathers, and clubbers. Guests can expect massive entertainment, open-air, gourmet food, affordable-ish bottle service, luxury cabanas with first-class amenities for rent, beautiful scenery, a 5-acre pool, plenty of bars filled with plenty of booze, plunge pools, over-the-top décor, and a banging sound system. If you want to experience a place that has it all and does it right, the new TAO Beach tops our list.
While Vegas is legendary for its nightlife, there is no shortage of daytime clubbing by the pools. Keep in mind not all beach clubs are created equal. Encore Beach Club is the most requested dayclub in the City, and for good reason: it is absolutely awesome! EBC is a 60,000 square foot club with beautiful aesthetics, luxury bungalows – four with private pools – daybeds, numerous cabanas and table options, over-the-top bottle service presentations, a gaming pavilion, and some of the best DJ talent in the business – EBC has it all! If you are looking for an all-day escape where you can embrace your wild side, look no further than Encore Beach Club.
MGM Grand's Wet Republic Ultra Pool has been a staple of Vegas pool parties since its early days – and yet, it has remained possibly the top and longest-running pool party in the City, thanks in no small part to an influx of all-star DJ talent like Martin Garrix and Kaskade. Featuring gigantic LED screens flashing over an outsized pool, beautiful people, and what might be the best chicken fingers in the industry, Wet Republic Ultra Pool is a surefire addition to our "must-see" list in Vegas. This adults-only pool party spans 54,500 square feet. It offers VIP bungalows with first-class amenities, multiple pools, full-service bars boasting signature cocktails, bottle service, plus cabanas, daybeds, and chaise lounges. If you are a pool party enthusiast, be sure to add this trendy ultra-pool to your bucket list.
Las Vegas is known for having some of the best dayclub parties in the world. A recent addition to the legendary dayclub scene, Ayu Dayclub, is brought to you by the world-famous lifestyle destination company, Zouk Group. Ayu Dayclub is a picture-perfect Balinese-inspired outdoor oasis that combines a high-energy nightclub vibe with poolside pampering. It promises to wow guests with its blend of tranquil island décor and vibrant music. Zouk Group has brought the heat 🔥 locking up four of the biggest headliners to multi-year contracts for the Dayclub and Zouk Nightclub to pull off the day and night party combo.
No list of the best pools in Las Vegas would be complete without the inclusion of Marquee Dayclub. This uber-chic stunner has been a solid entry in the Sin City pool scene year after year. Though it no longer features the same level of headlining talent as it did once upon a time, it still draws huge crowds to its doors. Creative and reasonable pricing, innovative marketing, and its prime location in the center of the Strip at one of the trendiest hotels in town power its success, and you can be sure to find many a drunken patron stumbling back to their hotel rooms with a visible Marquee wristband. The Dayclub connects to the world-famous Marquee Nightclub, and on busy days they will seat tables inside!

Notable Headliners:Resident Open Format DJs and Large Sports events draw the crowd
If you're looking for one of the best pool parties on the planet, "it's in the entertainment capital of the world." Though technically not a pool party (or a club for that matter), Stadium Swim offers guests the ultimate sports bar + sportsbook experience in a beautiful pool club setting, in the only 21+ hotel in the City. Located at Circa Resort & Casino in Downtown Las Vegas, this unique pool amphitheater venue is open 365 days a year and has room for 4,000 sports enthusiasts, partiers, and sun lovers.

Drai's Beachclub, located at The Cromwell Hotel, allows guests to indulge in the best views of The Strip from its multi-level rooftop. Spanning 35,000 square feet, the beautiful white-and-red design theme, coupled with a regal pool area flanked by palm trees, creates a sense of royalty that is unmatched by its competitors. This high-energy DJ-centric beach club is powered by performances from famous icon DJ Franzen and other chart-topping artists in the Hip Hop world.

If you want a premier day-clubbing destination that will turn ordinary into extraordinary, be sure to check out Azilo Ultra Pool. This is not your typical hotel pool. As part of the Sahara Hotel's 150-million-dollar renovation, this Ultra Pool will entrance guests not only because of its location but because of how seamlessly it blends into the lush landscape and the unique design elements of the venue. Hang out in this 35,000 square foot Moroccan-inspired paradise in the middle of the desert and enjoy the beautiful scenery, an intimate vibe, handcrafted cocktails and signature drinks, delicious eats, VIP bottle service, and talented artists spinning quality tunes. With the addition of a 2-story, 10,000 sq. ft. LED – designed for watching multiple games and events simultaneously – Azilo Ultra Pool is truly a feast for the senses.
When it was first built, Daylight Beach Club was meant to rival the big EDM pools of the day (Marquee Dayclub, EBC, and Wet Republic) by offering a festival-type atmosphere and electronic dance DJs. They have since zagged while everyone has zigged, booking hip hop performers, and going in an entirely opposite direction. As a result, they have cornered the market in that regard. If you're looking for an all-hip hop, this is your best bet! Sunseekers flock from all over to be part of this Beach Club. Located at Mandalay Bay, Daylight Beach Club offers 50,000 square feet of luxury space with a 4,400 square-foot main pool and two additional private pools for cabana guests. Guests can lay back and sip expertly crafted cocktails and indulge in sweet and savory signature bites while soaking up the sun, engaging in some wild shenanigans, and listening to fantastic music from some of the top DJs in the industry.
While the Flamingo Las Vegas is the oldest hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip, the GO Pool is a party pool with amenities and ambiance that rivals some of Sin City's hottest dayclubs. It is one of the more surprising and underrated pool clubs in the City, quietly building into a force of its own behind throwback hip hop acts, unique musical performances, a covered gaming area, daybeds, cabana rentals, and affordable bottle service. Though not as well-known and in-your-face as its neighbor, Drai's Beach Club, guests looking for a more intimate pool vibe are sure to enjoy this newer addition to the daylife scene. The Flamingo Go Pool is an adults-only oasis featuring 15 acres surrounded by palm trees, lagoons, a cascading waterfall, and calming water meant to refresh and re-energize.
LIQUID Pool Lounge is located inside the opulent ARIA Hotel & Casino. At 16,000 square feet, this adults-only secluded gem is not the biggest pool party in town, but it is a great mid-tier option for guests looking to attend a solid pool party but not at the big club prices. This stunning daytime destination offers a chic, sophisticated ambiance, VIP cabanas, and luxurious dipping pools. Guests can enjoy sipping specialty cocktails and delicious drinks, a mouthwatering menu, and VIP bottle service while listening to world-class DJs spin everything from EDM and Hip Hop to Top 40 music. Do summer right, live your best "daylife" at Liquid Pool Lounge. This ultimate poolside experience blends flawlessly into the daytime party scene on the Las Vegas Strip.
Vibe Check:Intimate pool setting lets ladies fly free in this secluded gem inside the Mirage Hotel & Casino.
Legendary within the Vegas service industry for their Monday industry parties, Bare Pool Lounge is small compared to every other pool club on the Strip, but its European-style (top-optional) approach has guests returning again and again to this beautiful little oasis tucked away inside The Mirage. If you're dreaming of warm summer months in the hot desert sun, this adults-only playground is where you can release your inhibitions and feel free to bare it all – at least on top! This totally topless option offers a relaxed vibe in a secluded and intimate surrounding, private cabanas, bottle service, plenty of bars, a poolside menu, and live DJ sets. Just think, no tan lines but don't forget the sunscreen!

Vibe Check:Pool party at the largest strip club in the world.
At 70,000 square feet, Sapphire is the largest – totally topless – gentlemen's club in the world, but during the day, it's lots of fun in the sun. Sapphire Pool & Dayclub hosts the biggest, most exciting, and "toptional" private pool party in Sin City, as well as a daytime strip club. Beautiful bronze dancer-tainers walk around topless, and you can also buy lap dance or three. Like most strip club-type venues, Sapphire Pool is a popular spot for game day activities, bachelor parties, "party with a porn star" events, plus football specials are available for Sunday games. This place draws a good crowd, but it's not so packed that you can't move, dance, and relax. Here you will find daybeds, bungalows, and cabanas available to rent, VIP lounge seating, bars, bottle service, and package deals. The two pools are a bit small, but since you aren't there to actually swim, likely that won't be an issue.
Vibe Check:Pool party overlooking a pool, topless, and life-style friendly
Moorea Beach Club is an intimate, upscale, and secluded top-optional dayclub with a South Beach vibe located at Mandalay Bay.

XS is not only one of the hottest nightclubs in Vegas but arguably, in the world. It is typically open on Friday and Saturday nights from 10:30 PM until 4:00 AM, but starting in May, the ever-popular "XS Night Swim" takes over Sunday evenings. If you have never experienced this event, likely you are suffering from FOMO! Management brings in world-class DJ talent, and it turns into one of the best nighttime pool parties in town with some of the highest table minimums of the year – and worth every penny! This seasonal soiree attracts a party crowd fashionably dressed in upscale swimwear or nightclub attire.

Vibe Check:A wild night with blow-up pool toys and lots of splashing
The pools in Vegas are not limited to daytime. The award-winning Encore Beach Club at Night (or EBC at Night) is one of the hottest nighttime destinations in the City, bringing the festivities outside in this exclusive pool party. EBC at Night is an adult playground that typically takes place from May through October. Party lovers enjoy lots of splashing, pool toys, beautiful bungalows and cabanas, over-the-top bottle presentations, confetti cannon showers, and notable DJs spinning high-energy dance music. When the sun goes down, the night lights up at EBC.

Club-goers can party and socialize in style with this dynamic daytime dining experience from October through March 11 AM – 6 PM. It is the ideal spot for a girl's day out or a bachelorette party celebration and the perfect prelude to a memorable Saturday night out in Sin City.

So you're planning your Vegas trip and looking to study up as much as you can before your trip: smart move! In addition to the blurbs above, feel free to check out our collection of Vegas Nightlife Guides where we answer everything from booking limo transportation to IV hangover recovery, answering basic club questions like dress code, and explaining the finer points of bottle service and guestlist reservations – we cover every aspect of educating you about Las Vegas nightlife.
All Vegas pool clubs operate under a similar general dress code: no cargo shorts, no athletic wear, no one in long pants, and everyone must be in swimsuits. The biggest thing to remember is that one must always dress as if they are going into the water, even when they don't plan to. All guests entering must-have swimsuits on.
The biggest reason a club's door security staff will deny a guest entry (if it isn't a dress code violation) is either an issue with the guest's ID (fake IDs, expired licenses, etc.) or an issue with the guest being too intoxicated to come into the venue without being a danger to him/herself or others.
A pool-club crawl is a "tour" of multiple venues offered at one flat rate. You go with the tour to the first stop, then after an allotment of time, the tour guide takes you and the rest of the group to the next stop, and so on until you reach the final destination. It's a good deal for people looking to see the most venues in one night at a discounted rate. There aren't many pool crawls available in Vegas (since the pools are few and far between, making it hard to hit consecutive venues), but a couple exist here and there.
Can Ladies get free drinks at Vegas Pools?
Buying drinks inside the Vegas clubs & pools can be pricey; however, for ladies, you may be in luck, as some Vegas venues offer free drinks with open bar as an added incentive with free guestlist entry. Additionally, you might be eligible for a girl comp table.
DISCLAIMER: Because of the number of guests that arrive during the summer months, and there are fewer dayclubs than nightclubs, venues that offer extra perks like free drinks and comp tables are invariably less than you would find at night.
Is it better to buy tickets or get on the guestlist for Vegas clubs?
While getting on the guest list is the vastly more popular method (since it's free) for guests to use as their method of entry, sometimes it's better for your group to purchase tickets to the event to lock down your entry, since tickets are guaranteed entry! The decision also depends on the event and the venue. Also, for groups of 6 or more, you may find that buying bottle service is the better, more cost-effective option than spending money on general admission tickets. Contact us if you're unsure or need recommendations on what to do!
One of the services we offer to select groups is hosted VIP entry. Typically, only guests who buy bottle service get the privilege of getting expedited through the VIP Table entryway, but we can offer that service to non-table clients for a fee. Interested?
Vegas clubs typically open at around 10:30–11 AM and close at about 5–6 PM. If the event you're attending has a headlining DJ, expect the artist to start around 3 PM or 3:30 PM. Live performers (like hip hop artists) typically don't come on until about 3:30 PM, so be prepared to wait if you want to see the artist perform. Planning out the night's activities?
Nightclubs and Strip Club are popular after-party spots for guests who plan on rallying after their fun in the sun. We offer VIP Entry and free limo pickup (among other perks) to strip clubs for those looking to inquire.
Girls are everywhere in Las Vegas – literally everywhere. We encourage guests to build their own organic relationships with other Vegas visitors, but if you want, we can help connect you with the Promoter Girl-Guy to ladies that hit us up who want to hang out at a table.
If you want a guaranteed group of ladies partying at your table, you can also hire a couple of our atmosphere models to hang out with your group.
Is limo transportation included with day club reservations?
Limo transportation isn't built into the reservation price for nightclub inquiries, but if you and your group are looking to charter a limo or party bus to take you to your next destination, we can definitely arrange that for you as well. Complimentary limo and party bus transport are included with all strip club reservations. We even have strippers on party buses for crazy rides to the pools! 👯♀️
